bt_youview_hubBT is adding UKTV’s full portfolio of channels to its TV platform, catch-up service and TV Everywhere app which lets subscribers watch shows on their smartphone and tablet.

The network’s Eden, Good Food and Home channels will join Gold, Alibi, Watch, Dave, Really, Yesterday and Drama which are already available on the platform.

Viewers will be able to catch-up with any shows they’ve missed for up to seven days after transmission via a UKTV Play branded service and watch any of the ten channels while they’re out and about.

Delia Bushell, managing director of BT TV and BT Sport, said: “BT TV is rapidly expanding and these three great new channels will help us to offer the breadth and quality of programming that our customers want. 

“UKTV is a key partner for BT TV and we are delighted to have extended the relationship to offer the full span of UKTV’s popular comedy, drama, natural history & lifestyle channels, and to add these to our BT TV Everywhere service, as well as launching the excellent UKTV Play on demand service.

“This further supports our vision for providing customers with a range of great quality TV at affordable prices.”

Darren Childs, CEO, UKTV added: “UKTV’s continued investment in original content has made our channels more popular with viewers than ever before.

“I’m delighted BT’s customers will now be able to enjoy programmes from across our network and watch great entertainment on demand with UKTV Play.”
